Christmas Bear

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and this week we would like you to make a card for 'Baby's First Christmas'.  I have used an adorable die cut topper from Lilly of the Valley and papers from Pink Petticoat.


I have kept with quite a simple design, the embossed background is a Cuttlebug snowflake folder, the sentiment is a LOTV stamp and I used a Fiskars punch to create the border.

This week we have two fabulous sponsors


who are giving a £10 voucher to one lucky winner

and

Iva Nova Chest



who are giving this fabulous baby themed goody bag



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CHNC Challenge 132 - Christmas card suitable for a child
Merry Monday July Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas
Shelly's Images July Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas
